About German Winter Thyme

Discover the Certified Organic German Winter Thyme Plant (Thymus vulgaris), a hardy perennial with a compact, aromatic profile. With its charming tiny lavender flowers, this winter-hardy variety adds beauty to function.

Its aromatic leaves lend a burst of flavor to sauces, soups, and salads, while also complementing poultry and fish dishes. Beyond its culinary charm, thyme has a historical medicinal use for respiratory ailments and parasites.

How to Grow German Winter Thyme

Thriving in well-drained soil with moderate nutrients, this thyme prefers to maintain its compact shape rather than becoming leggy. Harvest its leaves at their peak, preserving their freshness in an airtight container or through freezing. Reaching 8 to 12 inches at maturity, it’s ideal for garden landscapes and containers.

It grows as a perennial plant in hardiness zones 4 through 9 but can also grow as an indoor plant or kitchen herb in cooler zones. When growing this herb indoors, be sure to give it plenty of light.

With a preference for full to partial sun, this perennial herb attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, enhancing your garden’s vibrancy. As a natural deterrent to cabbage worms, it’s a gardening ally. Its resilience in diverse conditions, combined with its ornamental features, makes it a versatile choice. As a drought-tolerant and open-pollinated plant, the German Winter Thyme brings both culinary and visual delight to your gardening endeavors.
